How To Reach
Book a Package Tour
The Mines Shopping Mall Jalan Dulang MINES Resort City Seri Kembangan Selangor Malaysia
This was a mall right next to where we were staying. We ate here quite often since Kuala Lumpur has no vegetarian food!
KL Tower Kuala Lumpur Selangor Malaysia
This massive structure is also situated in the heart of the city and every-time you see it, you’d keep wondering: ‘What is in there?’ (We were in awe as well). It is a 421m tall broadcasting and telecommunications tower which is one of the highest in the world. If you get the time, you should in fact go to the revolving restaurant or its observation deck to get the best views of the city.
Sunway Lagoon Petaling Jaya Malaysia
Sunway Lagoon consist of multi-parks which you can choose over 2 days. There are a total of 5 different parks ie water park, amusement park, wildlife park, extreme park and scream park. I covered all 4 parks except scream park over the span of 2 days. Water park is fairly big and we spend a day there. For the other 3 parks, we managed to complete it in a day. Special recommendation: please try the 5D water ride in the water park!
Sunway Pyramid Shopping Mall Petaling Jaya Malaysia
This is a very big shopping mall with shopping and f&b in the Sunway vicinity ie walking distance from Sunway Lagoon. You will probably get lost walking in this mall as there are different towers.
The Hagia Sofia, the Blue Mosque and the Basilica cistern are all within walking distance of one another. A quick metro ride into the Sultanahmet area and I was at the famed Blue Mosque. I draped myself in a kaftan they provided at the entrance and spent the rest of my time sitting inside on it's carpeted floors, gaping at the intricate tiling and art work, while trying to get spiritual.
Friends The Restaurant
We had wanted to head over to Romdeng after drinks at the FCC, but when we called it was fully booked, so we reserved our table for the next night, and instead headed over to their sister restaurant called Friends which was just a few hundred metres inland from FCC. They didn't have room for us, but I asked when they would, and they said in about 15min. So some of us waited whilst others headed over to the 711. This place was high on my friend BeirutiBrit 's list of places she wanted to try as she had been to the Siem Reap branch. It is run as a charity to train ex-street children in the restaurant business. So an utterly worthy cause in a country previously torn apart by war and still quite poor. What kind of food can you expect at Friends? A combo of Western and Eastern inspired tapas and some special emu main courses.... so basically you can expect just about anything!
Sepang International Circuit Sepang Selangor Malaysia
I was here for the 2014 Formula One race. Great variety of food available. A bit costly though. View from my seat was good but the lack of TV screens made it difficult to keep track of the action on the other end of the track. Heavy rains on the Saturday so do make sure you pack a rain coat because it might rain any time.
